ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Shane Beamer, the associate head coach and running backs coach at Virginia Tech the last five years and son of longtime Hokies coach Frank Beamer, is Georgia's new special teams coordinator and tight ends coach.

New Georgia coach Kirby Smart announced the addition of Beamer to his staff on Tuesday.

Beamer previously was an assistant coach at South Carolina (2007-10) and Mississippi State (2004-06). He was a wide receiver and long snapper at Virginia Tech from 1995-99.

The addition of Beamer comes two days after Smart hired Miami's James Coley as wide receivers coach, Georgia Southern's Dell McGee as running backs coach and Washington's Marshall Malchow as recruiting director.

Frank Beamer retired after this season.
